Adam Schefter compares Christian McCaffrey to Eagles’ all

Earlier this week, New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton likened McCaffrey to a bigger, more physical Darren Sproles. ESPN’s Adam Schefter says when he watches McCaffrey he sees plenty of similarities to a former Eagles running back.

“Christian is, he’s can’t miss,” Schefter said Wednesday. “He’s can’t miss, because he’s that good. He’s a jackknife in the backfield. He can catch. He can run. I know people say he can’t run inside, I think he can run inside. He can run outside.”

While some analysts have pegged McCaffrey as a gadget player, his film and production show a violent, yet shifty runner with excellent field cheap tom brady jersey vision as illustrated by his 1,603 yards and 13 touchdowns as a junior.
